Too much information

    There is way too much information out there these days. When I played in the 90's I had 1 bass and 1 amp. Didn't feel the need to have any more than that. Now I can sit in my damn living room and look up all this crap and see what all the local stores have in stock, read reviews on every possible piece of equipment. It makes me constantly second guess all my gear, my playing and everything else music related. Always have to try new stuff. Now I have 6 basses 3 amps and I'm not content with any of it. I miss the old days of having to go to the stores and wait for classified adds. It's just too much. I miss having narrow options.
  2. Haha, well the solution is to stop surfing the internet and play bass instead. If you ignore the information nozzle it will start to seem like the old days again.

    P.S. you appear to have double-posted this.

    But I can't stop! It's like a crack addiction!

    I feel your pain. I took about 4 months off from TB at one point for this very reason!
